    October 5, 2019 - Corked.

    September 26, 2019 - 75cl bottle: Medium ruby. Wet barnyard, leather, wood notes on the nose. Sweet dark fruit on the palate, but not cloying like the 2000. Well-balanced, spicy, still primary - prefer the faster effective aging which was apparent in the half-bottle, but still enjoyable. With an hour or two to breathe, some tertiary notes, e.g. mushroom, were evident. 88-90.

    August 24, 2019 - Same notes as for previous bottle: Volatile aromas with dried red fruit, tobacco and spices. Sweet-and-sour fruit on the palate, with soft tannins.

    August 18, 2019 - Decantered for an hour. Vanillas, peppers and Floral perfumes. Well balanced. Hints of thai spicy, but smooth and long.
    Beautiful wine, 4 hrs since opening an improving.
